The legacy of Vox-branded electric guitars goes all the way back to the early sixties. This model continues the Vox tradition of exceptionally well-playing and innovative guitars.

The Vox SDC-33 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar is cosmetically similar to the 55 solid-body guitars, and employs many of the same distinguished components. The 33 instruments represent a dramatic breakthrough in price for a guitar of this quality.

Carved Construction
The signature VOX 3-D contoured body of the SDC-33 ensures impeccable comfort and fatigue-free playing, offering a natural fit either seated or standing. Elegantly carved top surfaces result in a distinguished look and a comfortable playing position. Easy access to the upper frets is provided by the deeply cut inverse heel joint. Position dot markers are placed both on the fingerboard and on the side of the neck for fast reference.

Quality Components
The SDC-33 guitar uses the same MaxConnect aluminum bridge as the Virage, offering extended saddle travel for flawless intonation with any-gauge string. Strings slide in from under the back edge of the bridge to make changing strings a snap. The full contact shape and light weight combine to deliver thick, rich tone with clear, singing harmonics. VOX Super Smooth tuners offer the SDC-33 enhanced tuning stability, so you can play with confidence. The mahogany necks are topped with rosewood fingerboards.

Uncompromised Tone
33 guitars offer a deep range of tonal choices. New CoAxe pickups feature two pickup elements; each delivers a unique and sophisticated tone, yet each one remains whisper-quiet. The passive analog tone circuitry offers both a Master Volume and a Master Tone control to refine your individual sound. Logically laid out and easy to use, the controls allow fast changes during performance.

Neither a single-coil nor humbucker in the traditional sense, the CoAxe design incorporates a central row of pole-pieces encased in a high-impedance coil that's flanked by two blades. The entire construction is then surrounded by a low-impedance winding, which cancels the hum.

Chief designer Eric Kirkland says: "The basic idea is that the coils are coaxial: they're on the same plane, not stacked. The advantage is that the center sensing coil can work like a true single-coil and the outer, noise-cancelling coil is outside the magnetic field, between the central poles and the blades."

Excellent Tone & Value


from Willingboro, NJ

Comments about Vox SDC-33 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar:

I have a bunch of guitars at various price ranges and quality levels, so I have a lot to compare this VOX too. The SDC-33 is very well made and the sounds it produces are rich and full. These coAxe pickups are great. It is VERY neck heavy, even more so than an SG, so you gotta be careful and aware of the balance issues. But, that is the extent of my complaints. The gold top is a superbly applied, deep color with well done binding. The body is thin with contours that enhance the comfort and style of the guitar. A great addition to your collection. Not many people pulling a VOX out of their cases, so you'll get a lot of players asking to give it a strum. I recommend this guitar very much. Not a bad price for the quality you get in return. I am so impressed I think I'll go for the SSC-55 or the Doublecut Semi-hollow when I get the cash. Make one of these VOX guitars happen for you. Tremendous instrument.

Comments about Vox SDC-33 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar:

I'm a beginner player, and have tried several guitars to find one that is comfortable to play and has a nice tone to it. this particular beauty caught my eye while browsing online and decided to give it a try. It's really well made, very clean finish, nice solid hardware and it sounds fantastic. the price doesnt seem to match the quality of the build and makes one wonder why such a large price drop. even comes with a tusq nut, d'addario stings, and a nice gig bag. It was also packaged very well for shipping. standard Styrofoam around the body, wrapped as well, but even took the time to put a protective sheet around the strings on the guitar as well as a silica gel pack. maybe thats common but none of the other guitars i ordered have come that way.I really don't know much about guitars, but as a consumer, beginner, to me this is a great value, it's pretty, comfortable, sounds very nice, and i'm extremely happy with it.

gorgeous finish/ even better sound


from Centennial, CO

Comments about Vox SDC-33 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar:

I had been looking for a well-made solid body guitar. Obviously, there are tons of 'em out there. Most are decent. But Vox has put out a very interesting pickup technology that allows you to access a wide variety of tonal shadings and sounds. It has qualities of a traditional humbucker AND a P-90 in its design. Go to the Vox website for a more in-depth discussion. In this price range, I don't believe that there's anything that can touch this guitar. It's a great axe.

Comments about Vox SDC-33 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar:

Super looking and great sounding right out of the box and who can beat the price! I was looking for an inexpensive electric to complement my barn of expensive acoustics but this one may have me taking electric playing more seriously beyond a few rock and blues riffs.
